The International Institute for Restorative Practices offers a series of whole-day trainings that teach people basic restorative processes. Knowledgeable practitioners can become licensed trainers, and schools and other organizations may employ licensed trainers to provide economical restorative practices training.
There are two configurations available for licensing:
Introduction to Restorative Practices & Using Circles Effectively
“Introduction to Restorative Practices” helps participants thoroughly understand restorative concepts and learn effective strategies for managing behavior and teaching young people to take responsibility for their actions. “Using Circles Effectively” teaches participants the value and process of circles.
2-Day Facilitating Restorative Conferences
Participants in this training learn how to facilitate restorative conferences — structured meetings that bring together everyone affected by an incident of wrongdoing or conflict to discuss how they have been affected and decide how to repair the harm.
